I was underweight all my life until I hit my mid thirties. In many people it is normal. As long as they are eating healthily and are active, I wouldn't worry.

Are they healthy, active, growing (even a little), and thriving? If so... I wouldn't worry about the actual weight.

Are you and their father naturally thin? If so it could just be genetics, my son has been at the lowest spectrum for weight but both his father and I are thin, he eats healthy but not a huge appetite, I don't worry about it but jus doctor also realizes it's probably genetics.
